Fabric Teething Rings
Strips of fabric
Needle and thread
Pencil or skewer
Fabric Teething rings are great for babies without teeth. The fabric not only helps them during the pre-teething stage. Different fabrics can provide different stimulation for the little ones. Use Organic Fabrics with Organic Filling for a DIY Organic Teething Ring.
Cut at least three pieces of fabric to 10.5 inches long and 2.5 inches wide.
Fold the pieces with the right sides in length-wise. Pin all the edges evenly.
Sew along the length with a ¼ inch seam allowance removing the pins as you sew. Stop about ¼ inch from the end of the fabric. You now have a tube. Sew the end of the tube closed. Repeat for each tube.
Use the pencil or skewer to turn the tube right side out. Repeat for each of the tubes.
Hold the tube with one hand and stuff the tube with poly-fill. Fill the tube about ½ inch from the top. Repeat for each tube.
Take the first tube, bend it around and tuck the closed end into the open end of the tube to make a ring.
Sew the end closed and sew around the ring where one end meets the other.
Insert the next tube into the first ring and sew it the same way. Repeat with the rest of the tubes.
Cut six inches of ribbon (or 2 inches per ring) and use the iron to adhere an iron-on adhesive.
Cut the ribbon into three pieces and use the iron to attach it to the point on the ring that was sewn together.
